ALERT: Boxing on NYC Waterfront July 22

NEW YORK – Whether by yacht, water taxi, car, train or foot, fight fans will definitely want to make sure they head out to La Marina on the Upper Manhattan waterfront on Friday, July 22nd, as Ronson Frank’s Uprising Promotions presents a loaded night of boxing in a special outdoor attraction along the Hudson River.

“We are really excited about the opportunity to host the first boxing event at La Marina,” said Ronson Frank, President of Uprising Promotions. “It has been great working with the management and staff there since we started putting this show together. We are expecting another stacked card full of young, exciting fighters who will have the chance to perform in front of their local fan base. Everything has been falling into place, and we know this is going to be a great night.”

Boxing fans will be able to take in these fights while sipping cocktails at sunset, cracking a lobster for dinner or with their feet on the sandy beach in front of the luxurious La Marina. The newly built restaurant and lounge covers more than 75,000 square feet along the Hudson River waterfront in Upper Manhattan, making it a luxurious destination for a night of boxing and outdoor entertainment.

As is always the case, Uprising Promotions will stack the night with high-energy and competitive fights, and negotiations are already underway with local favorites and rising prospects who will be featured. Make sure to stay tuned as bouts are announced in the coming weeks.

Sponsorship opportunities for this exciting night are available now for any companies or local businesses who are interested in showcasing themselves. To inquire about becoming a sponsor, message us on Facebook or call (516) 451-6773.
